Mr Murphy


Mr Murphy is an art lover and client.  He has a beautiful, well designed condo full of Jared Slack paintings. After purchasing several of my paintings he asked me to do his portrait.  He did not want a traditional portrait, so we discussed ideas and came up with this one to best show his artistic, creative side.  This is a fun, interesting take on the art of the portrait. When looking at a subject, it is a great idea to think of ways to make them your own.  You don’t have to paint something a certain way because that is how it has always been done.  Art is fun because of the creative side where you can make those types of choices. I am glad I had a client, who when commissioning me, allowed my artistic sensibilities to come out!
